The VIVANDI Shower Filter Our Shower filters provide several benefits such as chlorine removal, reduction of soap scum, prevention of dry skin and significantly reduce hair loss. Many shower filters help balance water PH for better cleaning and remove synthetic chemicals in the water that can vaporize and be inhaled or absorbed through the skin. Even if you have dechlorinated water, there are huge benefits to using our shower filter in your home. The elimination of Middle Eastern chlorine levels and chemicals from your shower water is as important as the removal of these contaminants from your drinking water. Did you know : •Chlorine bonds to the skin and can destroy the natural bacterial balance of your hair and scalp. This may lead to dryness, itching, flaking and premature skin aging all over the body. •Chlorine gas, chlorine by-products such as Trihalomethanes (THM's), chloroform and many synthetic chemicals may become vaporized in hot shower water and become a concentrated area for toxic gasses. You are consistently inhaling these gasses with regular shower activity and this may pose a long term health risk. •Chlorine and most other chemicals can also be absorbed by the skin. These chemicals can therefore enter the body even without direct ingestion from drinking water. You may absorb more chlorine and synthetic chemicals through the skin during your shower than through drinking unfiltered tap water. Studies have shown that chlorine can destroy protein in the body and has adverse effects on your hair and skin. Chlorine chemically bonds with the protein in the skin and hair, making hair brittle and dry and sensitive skin can become itchy and flaky. Research shows that those long, hot showers we enjoy are actually a health risk! When the chlorine found in water evaporates into steam and is inhaled, the fumes can be 6-100 times more toxic than exposure to chlorinated drinking water.
